Minor League Update

Games of Tuesday, May 6

by Jeff Moore


Hitter of the Night: Rougned Odor, 2B, Rangers (Frisco, AA): 3-5, 2 R, 2B, 3B, HR, 2 K.
Odor’s home run on Tuesday puts him more than halfway to his 2013 mark of 11. The doubles power has always been there, but if they continue to go over the wall like this, the Rangers are going to have one heck of a player on their hands.

Pitcher of the Night: A.J. Cole, RHP, Nationals (Harrisburg, AA): 6 IP, 7 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 7 K.
Cole, who has been talented but inconsistent throughout his career, is beginning to give us a glimpse of what he can do when he’s on. He’s got premium stuff and could be a no. 2 starter if he can keep this up.

Best of the Rest

Wilmer Flores, SS, Mets (Las Vegas, AAA): 2-4, 2 R, 2B, HR. Omar Quintanilla and Ruben Tejada have a combined OPS+ of 102. That’s not the average between them. That’s their OPS+ numbers added together. No, Flores isn’t going to be a good shortstop, but the overall package will be better than what the Mets have now.

Kyle Parker, OF, Rockies (Colorado Springs, AAA): 2-4, R, HR. Parker has taken a methodical journey through the minor leagues, and the breakout of Charlie Blackmon could continue that trend, but Parker offers good power without big strikeout numbers, which is always an attractive quality.

Andrew Heaney, LHP, Marlins (Jacksonville, AA): 6 IP, 3 H, R, 2 BB, 4 K. Heaney is cruising through Double-A much the way he did High-A ball last year. His strikeout rate is where it needs to be, as is his walk rate. He’s not getting hit. All the boxes are checked. It’s only a matter of time.
